The staff was super nice and the woman who received us had impeccable English and gave us a very warm welcome. The area is a bit off for now but in 1-2 years it’s going to be blossoming with things all around it. If you prefer locals and to have it a tiny bit rural go now, it’s the perfect place for that. If you want more life around you find something closer to the beach or hoi an or wait until late 2019 when it’s a bit more gentrified. The closest beach, a bit quieter, is 500 meters away. The “real” an bang beach is about 1 km away. The hotel lends you bikes for free. The walls are maybe a tad thin. But overall a very nice stay would recommend.
